The Licenced Lotto Operators and Agents Association (LLOAA) has indicated that it solidly believes in the vision and innovative policies and programmes of the National Lottery Authority (NLA).
The leadership said members of LLOAA, as responsible citizens of the country, are willing to comply with the terms and conditions of the NLA, especially with regard to the new licencing fee.
A statement signed by the Chairman of the association, David Agyekum, and copied to the media said most of the private lotto operators and agents have willingly paid their respective licence fees to the NLA awaiting validation and background checks.
It said private lotto operators and agents have no issues concerning the GH¢1million licence fee and other relevant conditions set by the NLA in collaboration with its membership.
The leadership of LLOAA has also denounced the Concerned Lotto Agents Association of Ghana (CLAAG)—headed by one Kwaku Duah-Tawiah—as the spokesperson representing private lotto operators and agents in the country.
“Our attention has been drawn to Concerned Lotto Agents Association of Ghana (CLAAG) led by one Kwaku Duah-Tawiah, claiming to be the official spokesperson for all Private Lotto Operators and Agents in Ghana.
“CLAAG is not known to the private lotto operators, and that association does not represent the interests of private lotto operators and agents in Ghana,” the statement said.
The statement therefore urged the general public to totally ignore CLAAG, as they have no authority to talk on behalf of LLOAA.
